Omar Blue - Best Halloween Party Ever - 2016
Omar caught me off guard this year. I knew he had
something on his mind because I can always tell and he was being an extra good
He finally asked
if he could have his Halloween Party this year. Weakling that I am, and having such fun memories of last year, I said
yes. He didn’t mention that the party was going to be here at home, instead of
at K-9 Town. He only told me that I didn’t have to worry about anything, not
even the snacks.
That was all
I needed to hear.
remember Zilly Boo from last year’s party. She was the party Greeter this year.
I knew she has a drinking problem and she wasn’t able to hide the
bottle before I saw it.Luckily, she didn’t
have a chance to get toasted before I took it.
She didn’t really care because she was happy
that Omar let her be Greeter and she had some of her spider friends keeping
her company while she hung around.
I decided I
was going to find a spot and enjoy the party. I even put on some music for them
(or me, hehe.)I’d have some
of Zilly Boos ghost wine. I had some last year and it was excellent and appropriate
for the occasion.
believe my eyes when I went into the kitchen for the first time
since much earlier. Omar’s good friend, Monet had taken over my kitchen and had
already laid out the first batch of snacks. She said her Mom Gina Austin taught her how to make snacks.
was neat and under control, she wanted the kitchen to herself, so I took Zilly’s
bottle into the party. Omar introduced me to some of his friends that I hadn’t
met. Look at this little one. This is Heidi Witt from the Swiss Alps by way of
Virginia. She said this was her first ever Halloween Party and she was having a
real good time.
That was even
before this handsome little pirate came ashore. He didn’t take his eye off of
Heidi the whole night. She finally gave in and talked to him, but I don’t think
his sweetness moved her. We all know the song, “Girls just wanna have fun.”
They were so cute.
All of a
sudden there was a commotion at the door. I could hear Zilly Boo yelling, “You
can go in but there will be no politics at this party!"
I knew who it
was without going to the door. That was Omar’s job anyway. It was Donald and
Hillary by way of Lab Rescue, LRCP, the wonderful Lab rescue organization.Both agreed that they were just here to have
fun at Omar’s Halloween Party. They needed to get away from the daily grind of politicking.
friends just kept coming. Some of the witches wore their best hats, like Witch Lexi
Mattia here, and her friend Witch Lali below. They took up so much room that we
decided to go outside.
That’s when Omar
gave all of us his big surprise!
from the outskirts of K-9 Town were outside waiting. They were wearing their scariest
expressions and movements. Not only that but up the hill behind them, though we
could hardly see them, were some of his pack, ready to escort the party goers
to the next part of the Halloween Party.
was overwhelming once Omar let everyone know this was all a part of the plan
and the big dogs found out the Tree Monsters didn’t mean them any harm.
Needless to say they were all ready to go to K-9 Town.
I was running
back inside to get my camera when Omar stopped me to say that I couldn’t go. I
had a feeling that was the case anyway but thought if I moved fast maybe I
could slip by. I didn’t make it.
They left not
long after. To my surprise Zilly Boo wanted to stay with me, then I realized
she was only staying to finish off her wine, but that was okay, she didn’t have
to drive. We chatted for a long while, and she left to find some of her
skeleton friends at another Halloween Party.
When I was
alone, I thought about all that had happened and how much fun I had, knowing
that Omar would be ready to tell me about the rest of the night when he
forward to it, as I dosed off, quite content.
